system membership participation withdrawal
System Membership, Participation & Withdrawal

The state and every political subdivision of the state is automatically part of the system.

Participation in the system does not supersedeany other agreement to which a jurisdiction is a party.

An Indian nation, tribe or pueblo may become a member upon adoption of a resolution declaring the desire and intent to comply with the provisions of Act and the guidelines adopted by the committee.

Jurisdictions may elect to withdraw from or not participate in the system, but only by adopting a resolution or ordinance declaring these intentions.

Basic Provisions of IMAS
  • NEGOTIATION & DEPLOYMENT COORDINATION

Member jurisdictions consider the request, determine resource availability, and respond to the requesting party concerning whether or not they are able to fulfill the request.

If a member is able to fulfill the request it provides the following information (an offer of assistance):

*** A jurisdiction requesting aid deserves a timely, good-faith effort by other member jurisdictions to estimate the cost of fulfilling the request.

The costs that are typically estimated at this point include personnel and contract costs; travel, lodging, meals or per diem costs; and equipment operation, maintenance, and/or rental costs.

The estimates should be based on known rates and existing jurisdictional procedures for reimbursement.

If a member jurisdiction intends to donate all or part of the cost of providing assistance it should be indicated verbally and on the IMAS Request and Deployment Form.

All resource deployments under IMAS are reported to New Mexico Department of Homeland Security and Emergency Management for tracking and reporting.
